It is now unavoidable, and I’m not sure how to feel about it, but WordPress is now telling me, like it or not, everybody gets the new editor and likes it. It was WOEFUL the last time I tried it, but by the look of things now simple text is a thing of the past, because you already lost interest two lines ago and are looking for distraction. I really do hate notional progress.
However, this is a fairly important step forward, because over there to my left, in the ‘Blocks’ menu, is one marked as ‘Premium Content’ which does suggest that there is now the opportunity to use the Work Website as a portal for paying subscribers (i.e.; Patreon users) which okay, I’ll accept is sufficient to take off the curmudgeon hat for.
If I were one of those people who ascribe to fate throwing you a cheeky wink from time to time? This is probably a big deal. Who am I kidding, this is ABSOLUTELY a big deal, and will allow some subtle improvements to my site going forward. Probably the biggest one going forward, however, is this block:
Who Knows...? Everyone is struggling at the moment; might be a correct statement but really isn’t well-meant as way to make me calm: I understand uncertainty always constant, part of me who struggled going out before you lot got stuck at home. This time it’s not just me afraid so many of you worried time all those armchair experts redefined beliefs. It’s not just you that’s frightened panicking, not sleeping well: always someone worse off what if you were alone; things are pretty tough right now let’s face it all, together strong; mental health’s importance raised collective issues, owned. Listen, watch your language, open up with empathy kindness costs us nothing donations given free: that mate you’ve not heard from message colleagues, relatives nobody escapes this thing and no-one stays the same. Everyone can change the way we deal with mental illness all of us possess those skills kindness, with concern: find the time to lend an ear make somebody’s moment find the time to listen; who knows what you’ll learn.
Time to have a fiddle with these changes in situ, and see what I can find of use…
